    Comments about Coronado SolarMax II 60 Solar Telescope with RichView Tuning:

    This is a fine upgrade from the Coronado PST. Much brighter views, better detail and finer tuning. I'm very satisfied. Now saving for the $800 double stack option.

        Comments about Coronado SolarMax II 60 Solar Telescope with RichView Tuning:

        I ordered the SolarMax 60 II with the BF10. The scope is pretty easy to use. Finding the sun with the sun finder is fast and quick, then pull out the tube until the sun comes into focus, then turn the dial for more of a fine tune focus. Then adjust the etalon lever and 'boom' surface detail, prominces, active regions & filaments pop right out at you. The sun is peaking its 11 year solar cycle and will max out in 2012-2013. Thus is a good time to buy. The sun appears as a reddish type color, I thought this would be a bit bothersome but actually its not. The eyepiece it came with gives you 16x magnification. All my other eyepieces seem to work just fine with it as well. Everything is built very nice and looks scientific. Meade did a good job here along with the strong sturdy carry case that it comes with. I was a bit bummed out though realizing that I needed a Barlow lens inorder to use my binoviewers with it.
